2020 Recharter

Attention Parents and Scouts,

We are quickly approaching that time of year where we recharter our Troop and Scouts. While we normally would have started that process, this year we are in a holding pattern, due to the recent announcement from BSA National Council about an increase in annual dues. A portion of the dues that you pay our Troop ultimately ends up supporting the BSA at the national level. Currently, that amount is $33.00 per Scout and adult leader. The balance is used to support the Troop and our local council.

BSA National has stated that it will notify all local councils by October 23rd what the new dues amount will be. Troop 465 likely will have no choice but to pass that increase along to our Scouts and leadership. Currently, our annual dues for Scouts are $108 and $54 for our leaders. We expect that amount to increase due to the increase at the national level.

Once we have a final amount for the dues increase, we will send another email with the new Troop 465 dues amount. Our Troop will continue to do its best to ensure that all boys who want to participate can do so, regardless of ability to pay. If your Scout will need a scholarship, then we will be available to discuss that, once we know the actual amount of dues to be paid.

If you wish to get a jump on recharter, you can start filling out another BSA Annual Health & Medical Record (health form) Parts A & B and the 2020 Recharter Form. We will accept these forms and dues payments at a later date to be determined, after final dues amounts are confirmed.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the recharter process.

Troop 465 History Committee


The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Jason Norred is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Norred is only our 8th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
